Saket Kanoria, CEO of TCPL Packaging and the company’s management team with representatives from KBA and IPM ordered three more Rapida 106 with a total of 26 printing and finishing units. The first new Rapida will begin its journey to the TCPL plant in Silvassa in autumn 2016. It features seven inking units and two coaters, produces conventionally as well as with UV inks/coating and will be embedded in pile logistics. A six and a 7-color Rapida 106 with coater are expected to follow in early 2017. One will go to the company’s plant in Haridwar and the location for the other has not yet been decided. The main reasons for the new investment in KBA sheetfed offset presses are the presses’ high output, the excellent support from KBA and sales partner IPM, and KBA’s recognized poll position in UV production.

TCPL Packaging operates three sheetfed offset sites. The third is in Guwahati. The company is accredited with all the usual certificates for quality management and the production of food packaging. Founded in 1990, the packaging printer employs 1,200 staff today. Many of the company’s products have won awards.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
